Partner, Head of Hospitality
Andrew heads up our Hospitality team and has a wealth of experience in advising hotels, pubs, restaurants, golf courses and private members’ clubs.
He joined haysmacintyre in 1999 as an audit graduate in the commercial property sector and began working with our hotel clients. This led on to restaurants and bars and so when he became a Partner in 2007, Andrew was the natural choice to head up our Hospitality sector team.
As well as audit and tax compliance work, Andrew sits on the operational board of a number of his clients to provide consultancy and structuring advice, including corporate strategic planning and financial benchmarking. His other work includes the building of complex financial models for clients that allow them to budget more accurately or consider a new acquisition more carefully.
Andrew’s team also performs due diligence work for both refinancing and additional bank lending for new projects.
Many of his clients are owner managed businesses where he is able to provide overall advice that considers the circumstances of both the company and the shareholders. Advice that Andrew strongly believes is not mutually exclusive.
Andrew is asked to speak at conferences and on panels regularly, including the Propel Info Conference, the UK Hotels Conference and the Boutique Hotels Conference.
Outside of work, Andrew is a keen golfer (whose swing is best described as “enthusiastic”) and an avid poker player.
